Media: OCU seizes historic premises in Volodymyr-Volynsky
The OCU attacked the building of the former monastery belonging to the city community in the historical and cultural reserve "Ancient Volodymyr".
In Volodymyr-Volynsky, representatives of the OCU seized the building of a former monastery on the territory of the historical and cultural reserve “Ancient Volodymyr” and placed the head of the Volodymyr-Volynsk “eparchy” in it, reports the online edition “BUG”.
Representatives of the reserve and local activists told the resource that the premises of the former monastery are in the communal property of the city community of Volodymyr-Volynsky. The City Council did not make any decisions on the transfer of property to the OCU, but the raiders are already actively carrying out repair work in the building. “The permission to use the land and the building was previously given for a nunnery, but now there is an eparchy here. No documents were reissued after the change,” activist Andrei Kandyba told “BUG”.
The police were called to the place of work, which documented the fact of unauthorized construction work, which must be coordinated with the reserve. The Internet edition "BUG" tried to get comments from the secretary of the OCU "eparchy" and the head of the monastery, but they did not comment on the event in any way.
